Awesome to see 2 Huntsville area breweries in the top 15! Rocket republic makes some solid beers. But very excited to see us beating out breweries like New Belgium, Victory, Ommengang, St. Bernardus ....

Good showing. I got to get there for a visit before you get more good press, and nobody goes there because it is too crowded.  ;)

Way to go, Keith.

I'm making a La Fin du Monde clone attempt in a couple months, stepping up the dregs of La Fin bottles to try to get the most authentic results, but also splitting the batch to try out Lallemand Abbaye.  I'd be interested to hear if you have any thoughts on these two yeasts, and if you're willing, what yeast you use.

Cheers.
Dave

I honestly haven't used either of those and the yeast I use now is WY1214 and that is because I always have so  much of it available. I used to use WY3787 when I homebrewed my tripels.

awesome - congrats!  sort of has me wanting to brew a Tripel now, but I wouldn't even know where to start with that - so out of my realm.

Glad to see that Yella Hammer beer in among other beers that I've tasted and appreciated. It adds credence to the rankings. You are in good company, Kieth!

Yes, congratulations.  Nice company

Nice job.

But Straffe Hendrick?  Really?

And what is wrong with a Straffe Hendrick tripel?  I like it a lot.  The author's "boozy but dry" description is spot on.

Oh, sorry, I thought we were continuing the "make fun of the list" game from the other thread  :)

Dave, I'm interested to hear your results. I love the Unibroue strain, but I've only ever used the Wyeast version. I've never stepped it up from dregs. Have you considered using Blanche de Chambly for the dregs instead of La Fin? It's only 5%, so I'm thinking that the yeast is probably in better shape.

I hadn't considered that.  Not a bad idea.  Except I think I'll only buy La Fin, because I friggin love it.  Plus I'll save a bottle so after I make my own I can do a side-by-side comparison to see what's similar & different.
